An Original Vintage Theatrical 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

The Best Man Wins, the 1935 Erle C. Kenton deep sea diving romantic love triangle crime thriller ("These cockeyed Casanovas uncork a corking comedy!"; "Hail!.. The Screen's New Laff Twins"; "From the story by Ben G. Kohn"; about a pair of divers, and one saves the other one's life but loses his arm doing so; later, he joins a gang of crooks, and his best friend is now a policeman, who must catch the gang, which of course includes his best friend who saved his life) starring Edmund Lowe, Jack Holt, Bela Lugosi, Florence Rice, and Forrester Harvey. Note that Bela Lugosi's "star" had fallen so much by 1935 (just 4 years after his great success in Dracula) that, even though he was third billed, he was not even pictured on the only poster we have auctioned from this movie!
NOTE: Click on linked names to see a biography.

Condition: good. The still was used in a newspaper in 1941, but it is an original still from 1935 (there are two stamps from the newspaper on the back, one dated 1935, and one dated 1941). When it was used in 1941, someone glued the newspaper image to the back of the still. There is touch up paint in Lugosi's hair and cheek and in the black background, to improve the appearance of the still in the newspaper. There are many creases and scuffs scattered through the still and some printer marks in the top border. The still is rippled down the left and you can see water staining on the back of that area, but it is not very noticeable from the front.
